A Note From Deborah Balint
Pomegranates are an ancient fruit, native to the Middle East and revered worldwide for their beauty, flavor, and incredible health benefits. With its stately crown on top, it’s clear that something special is inside. Pomegranate arils are bright ruby-red, jeweled-toned seeds with a sweet and tart flavor that makes them perfect for both sweet and savory dishes. While the fruit might be only available from late fall until February, pomegranate juice and molasses can be found year-round, making this antioxidant-rich superfood a must-have pantry staple. Pomegranates can be used as a topping for breakfast and salads, as a base for cocktails or smoothies, in desserts and anything from appetizers to dinner. I hope you find inspiration in this feed for all the many uses of this incredibly versatile fruit.
